New England Fun Ship Vacation

Like those who look for sun and sand in the Caribbean, others look for history, quaintness and foliage in New England/Canada.

One of our newest pages at All-Inclusive Caribbean Cruises looks at cruises to New England/Canada that are becoming quite popular for their offering of a peek into history and a chance to see amazing fall colors.

Cruise Industry News

Here are two of several things happening in the cruise industry:

1. Popular Ships to Leave the Caribbean.

In an effort to shore up their presence in other markets, some Caribbean cruise lines are moving ships overseas.

Among the ships leaving the Caribbean to ply other routes are: Carnival Legend moving to Australia; the Norwegian Epic (their largest ship) moving to Europe; and the Quantum of the Seas (Royal Caribbean's newest ship that debuts this November), moving to Shanghai. The Quantum will sail the Caribbean for six (6) months before being re-positioned.

If you would like to experience any of these ships before redeployment, it is time to book your cruise.

Check with your Travel Agent for additional information.

2. Cruise Lines to Add New Ports of Call.

Cruise lines ought to be credited with always looking for ways to entice, engage and satisfy their customers. It has long been felt that new ports of call need to be opened and your favorite cruise line is doing just that.

Carnival Corp. and a partner are developing Amber Cove on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic; Norwegian Cruise Lines is looking to build Harvest Cay, an ecology-themed port of call in southern Belize; and Royal Caribbean is working at Sugar Point in Barbados.

These soon-to-be ports promise to add freshness to Caribbean cruise itineraries. You should watch out for more information on these developments.

Plan A Group Cruise

A group cruise is comprised of at least 8 cabins (Carnival Cruises - varies with other cruise lines) with 2 or more passengers.

Group cruise ideas: family reunions, employee appreciation, club or organization fundraiser, girlfriends' getaway, couples' retreat, church outing, wedding, etc.

Reasons for planning a group cruise:

1. Cruising with a group is much more fun than cruising alone. I have done both and really prefer sailing with a group. Furthermore, there are perks to be had when cruising as a group.

Plan your group cruise today. Learn more about group cruises here.

Cruise Saving Tip

Here is something everyone loves - learning how to save a buck or two on their cruise vacation.

Tip: Cruise Deals Galore this Summer & Fall!

There is an over-abundance of ships sailing the Caribbean this summer through fall. This is true because the economic downturn in Europe resulted in some ships being re-positioned to the Caribbean.

Good news for you! Cruise prices are down!

If you have been thinking of sailing, now is the time to do it. Cruise lines continue to offer amazing deals. Explore your options with a Travel Professional and save with one of these cruise deals, while you still can.

Happy cruise saving!
